BACKGROUND AND AIM: The association of HIV with coronary atherosclerosis has been established; however, the progression of coronary atherosclerosis over time among participants with HIV is not well known. The Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study Quantitative Coronary Plaque Progression Study is a large prospective multicenter study quantifying progression of coronary plaque assessed by serial coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). PATIENTS AND METHODS: HIV-infected and uninfected men who were enrolled in the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study Cardiovascular Substudy were eligible to complete a follow-up contrast coronary CTA 3-6 years after baseline...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine how trial-based findings of EXCEL and NOBLE might be interpreted and generalizable in 'real-world' settings with comparison of data from the large-scaled, all-comer Interventional Research Incorporation Society-Left MAIN Revascularization (IRIS-MAIN) registry. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We compared baseline clinical and procedural characteristics and also determined how the relative treatment effect of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was different in EXCEL and NOBLE, compared with those of the multicenter, IRIS-MAIN registry (n=2481)...

BACKGROUND: Type 2 myocardial infarction (MI) is defined by a rise and fall of cardiac biomarkers and evidence of ischemia without unstable coronary artery disease (CAD) because of a mismatch in myocardial oxygen supply and demand. Myocardial injury is similar but does not fulfill the clinical criteria for MI. There is uncertainty in terms of the clinical characteristics, management, and outcomes of type 2 MI and myocardial injury in comparison with type 1 MI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients admitted to a Veterans Affairs tertiary care hospital with a rise and fall in cardiac troponin were identified...

BACKGROUND: There are no previous data on serial changes in neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) levels in ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients before and after a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI). The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prognostic value of serial NGAL measurements in patients with STEMI treated by pPCI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We identified 169 STEMI patients who underwent pPCI within 12 h of symptom onset and had plasma NGAL measurements before (pre-NGAL) and 6 h after (post-NGAL) pPCI...

BACKGROUND: SYNERGY, a bioabsorbable polymer-based, everolimus-eluting stent (BP-DES), recently received regulatory approval in the USA for use in percutaneous coronary interventions. Yet, information on the safety of BP-DES in routine clinical practice is limited. Our aim was to compare the safety of the recently approved BP-DES with current durable polymer drug-eluting stents (DP-DES) by analyzing adverse events, namely, stent thrombosis (ST), reported to the Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) database...

BACKGROUND: Mac-2 binding protein (M2BP) is an inflammatory glycoprotein associated with carotid atherosclerosis and all-cause mortality in patients with suspected coronary artery diseases. We aimed to explore the potential association of plasma M2BP levels with unstable plaque morphology and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). PATIENTS AND METHODS: We compared plasma M2BP levels among three groups: 216 patients with ACS, 82 patients with stable angina pectoris, and 50 controls...

BACKGROUND: Although coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) has been proven to have mortality and morbidity benefits in patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and multivessel disease, the appropriate timing of this procedure remains unclear. Therefore, we proposed a propensity score-matched analysis comparing the clinical outcomes between patients who underwent CABG within the first 48 h of admission (early CABG) and patients who underwent CABG after 48 h of admission (delayed CABG)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze the prognosis of patients presenting early ventricular fibrillation (VF) in the setting of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Among patients included in the ARIAM (Análisis del Retraso en el Infarto Agudo de Miocardio) registry with the diagnosis of STEMI, those who received primary revascularization and were admitted in the first 12 h were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: From January 2007 to January 2012, 8340 patients were included in the STEMI cohort and 680 (8...

OBJECTIVES: Certain neointimal patterns including neoatherosclerosis (NA) are known to be associated with poor clinical outcome. The prevalence and time course of different neointimal patterns have not been studied systematically. The aim of this study was to investigate the serial changes in neointimal pattern after drug-eluting stent implantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 132 patients with 207 drug-eluting stents, who underwent two follow-up optical coherence tomography studies at 6 and 12 months, were included...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to retrospectively evaluate the long-term clinical outcome after implantation of the self-expandable (SE) STENTYS stent in a large multicenter cohort. BACKGROUND: Incomplete stent apposition is known to cause higher rates of myocardial infarction (MI) and stent thrombosis. Because of its self-expanding features, the SE STENTYS stent adapts to the vessel wall and is therefore expected to minimize malapposition and therefore the rates of MI and stent thrombosis...

BACKGROUND: Several variables of electrocardiogram exercise testing (EET) predict cardiovascular events in the general population and in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, most of the studies have not included patients with asymptomatic CAD. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of EET in asymptomatic CAD patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We carried out a retrospective single-center analysis including all patients with asymptomatic CAD documented by angiography who underwent EET from January 2010 to December 2013...

BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend prophylactic hydration for all patients with compromised renal function undergoing contrast exposure. However, the AMACING study published recently showed a noninferior result of hydration compared with no prophylaxis in high-risk patients and led to a heat discussion. This study aimed to validate the effectiveness of prophylactic hydration in different subsets of patients undergoing a contrast procedure. METHODS: We carried out a meta-analysis of randomized-controlled trials to assess pooled estimates of relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for incidences of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI), in-hospital all-cause mortality, and need for dialysis...

OBJECTIVE: Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) measurement is a well-established modality for assessing arterial stiffness and predicting cardiovascular events. However, to our knowledge, its usefulness has not been clarified among patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). This study assessed the prognostic value of baPWV in patients with NSTEMI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients (n=411, mean age, 63.8±13.5 years, 75.2% men) with NSTEMI who underwent a percutaneous coronary intervention and baPWV measurement were recruited between January 2013 and December 2015...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular mortality of patients with combined peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) is twice as high as that in those with either disease alone. It is known that patients with PAD undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention have a higher incidence of adverse cardiac events such as myocardial infarction or target vessel revascularization. OBJECTIVE: In this study, we compared the detailed characteristics of culprit and nonculprit plaques between patients with and those without PAD using optical coherence tomography...
